Water customers encouraged to use odd/even watering schedule during hot summer months

With the summer season and temperatures at or near 100 degrees, water demand for the City is up. Peaking water demands tax the City’s water supply and can create lower water pressure. Water customers should be conscientious of water use and practice odd/even watering for outside irrigation and watering practices to reduce the peak effect.

Under the odd/even watering schedule, houses with addresses ending with an odd number water on odd-numbered days; houses ending with an even address water on even-numbered days. This alternating watering schedule significantly reduces the peak effect of everyone wanting to water at the same time. Odd/even irrigation practices and water conservation measures assure there is enough water to maintain system pressures and fight fires.
